That is not entirely correct. Don't forget that they start on floor 20. Outside of mechanical floors, there are only around 70 true floors.

Actual floor count breakdown (IE each of these has an actual floor and a roof) is as follows:
Atrium - 1 floor
Offices - 44 floors
Sky Lobby - 1 floor
Offices - 24 floors
Transmission Equipment - 2 floors
Mechanical - 10 floors
Restaurant - 2 floors
Observation Deck - 1 floor

Total 'real' floors = 85
Total occupied floors (including atrium, sky lobby, restaurant and observation deck) = 73


This gets inflated by 18 because they count the atrium itself as 19 floors. The height then gets inflated with the 400+ foot mast on top also.

Some no-business born-insecure developers had started an ugly vicious rumor that the spire might not be as tall as planned.

Sounds like they're just trying to find something else about the tower to nit-pick at!!

I wasn't aware that the spire will be a functional antenna as well.

Actually, I was wondering how you came up with 102 floors, when there actually are not that many. Can you break it down for us? Perhaps I'm mistaken.

Good catch. I changed it to 'mast' in my prior post. In reality, it is simply a pole with some scaffolding around it.

The observation floor is floor 102 because office floors are numbered from 20 up starting at the top of the base, which is over 180' tall, and there are also floors on top of the observation floor. Let's not do this again. The final number is going to be over 102 no matter what anyone says. Also, let us not whine about the spire.


The height ain't being cut, and if you believe that it is, you lack a brain.

What if they're cutting the height of the mast in order to add to the roof height? Nah j/k.

Once the GS Tower is topped and gets all of its glass, it will be time for this tower to start rising. These next few weeks are only going to get better and better. Towers 3 and 4 will start up in early January and then T2 a few months later, so come next month, there will always be a lot to watch, not that there isn't already. 99 Church Street and Beekman Tower better be completed by 2011.
great news,I'll be watching the GS becuase it's like half done.

Is that supposed to be the Freedom Tower base? It looks like a steel mesh cage from that rendering.

That is just an ugly vicious rumor that got started from oppossing developers who never wanted the tower to be built in thew first place. But they'll get over it.

Why wasn't it put in the papers? Why wasn't it on the news?

Thank you, Ebola!

This also came from the LMDC's website. That the tower will have 102 floors with 82 of them occupiable.

I truly wish that people would try to get their facts straight before posting stuff about the tower, instead of just relying on ugly vicious rumors.

The only thing that I know is that the former design of the tower was going to be 70 floors. When the present design was unveild two sumers ago (June, '05), the tower's structural height was increased by reversing the dead space and putting it on the bottom
in the base, giving the tower 82 occipied floors.

At first, the other 20 floors were not mentioned until sometime this year maybe. But I KNEW that it has 82 occupied floors all along.

If they kept the superblock, then there wouldn't have been a need for a base that ugly.
